A defining moment...

I have had a defining moment in my life today! Let me just give you a little bit of background, Owen and I have been playing games ever since we have started dating. We play quite often, all different games between Nintendo to board games to card games. There is only one game that I can win Owen at consistently and that is Speed (the card game), which he has literally refused to play with me for years. I am always saying that one day, one day I will find a game that I win him at. Our biggest competition though has always been Risk. We have spent many nights staying up playing this game. I hate losing more than anything! Really I think I hate losing more than him and I turn into a bit of a physco when I lose but somehow someway I always loose. We played Risk a couple nights ago and I got the closest I ever have gotten to winning him, but of course he won in the end. But tonight, the defining moment was I finally for the first time ever won Owen at Risk! I am a poor winner too because I won't leave him alone about it but it just feels so good after all these years to finally sweep him of the board!! He says it is the first and the last time but I know it is the first of many to go. I am ready for round two but I think he is a little afraid of my rolling technique. Yahoooo!

I hate losing too. Josh always wins too and I know exactly how you feel. Josh and I recently bought a WII and don't like playing him because I hate always being the loser!!! He's faster, stronger, and I have only won one game a chess against him! Rats, do I know how you feel!!!

I hate to lose too so I think that is why Carson and I never play games together. That way neither of us are ever mad at each other because of losing because we just don't play them. I miss playing games and will sometimes convince him to play 3 to 14 (April I know you love this card game). When it comes to 3 to 14 we are about even on who wins and who loses.

Ha ha! I'm the same way. I hate when Rob wins @ everything. I always end up saying something childish like..."Well, @ least I'm cuter than you." or something stupid like that. Tell Owen to let up a little bit.:)

I have a new game for you it is called Settlers. It was so fun. Sometimes our neighbors play tell 3 AM. It is pretty addictive. It is this builder game where you try to get different cards like wood, brick etc. And you make villages, etc. You'll love it.
